Are TiVo viewers saying who America will probably pick to win The X Factor?
According to audience data culled from TiVo subscribers, two of the top three moments from Wednesday’s broadcast involved finalist Melanie Amaro. The No. 1 moment was when Amaro joined R. Kelly on stage for “I Believe I Can Fly,” while the other was her solo performance of Beyoncé’s “Listen.”
The third-most popular moment was when Alanis Morissette joined Josh Krajcik for the “Uninvited” duet.
TiVo results were prepared by using aggregated, anonymous, second-by-second audience data from more than two million households.
The finale for The X Factor will air tonight from 8 to 10 p.m.

Is Steve Jones leaving The X Factor? Not so fast, rumor mill.
A report from UK’s Daily Mail claimed host Steve Jones might not be part of season 2, and yesterday’s X Factor press conference left some speculating whether Nicole Scherzinger would return as a judge after she playfully dodged the question of her return. But an X Factor spokesperson tells EW both reports were purely speculative, saying, “Absolutely no discussions have been had and no discussions will be made about any contacts until the New Year.”
Additionally, Jones’s personal rep called the Daily Mail‘s report a “fabrication,” according to People.
Jones joined The X Factor originally to act as co-host with Scherzinger but was upgraded to a solo act after Scherzinger took her seat at the judges table following Cheryl Cole’s exit from the panel shortly after auditions began in May. Though his flavor of hosting has been cause for mixed reviews among fans of the show, Jones came out on top of an EW PopWatch poll last month, with 58 percent of the polled saying they could appreciate the Brit’s sometimes awkward demeanor.

Barbara Walters is known for her restrained interview technique, her unflappable professionalism in the face of blubbering celebrities and tough-as-nails politicians. But there’s one bold-faced name — and an unexpected one at that — who inspired a rise in Walters’ usually measured timbre when she spoke with EW about her upcoming special, Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011. “I loved doing the interview,” spilled Walters of tart-tongued, deep-V-rocking X Factor host Simon Cowell.
Cowell was just one of the eight people Walters interviewed for tonight’s special, which runs 90 minutes for the first time in its 18-year history. Others included the Kardashians, Katy Perry, Donald Trump, and Derek Jeter. She will also profile Pippa Middleton and Amanda Knox. So what else did the interview queen have to say about Cowell and others on the short list? READ FULL STORY »
